Abundant, well cooked, includes water and soda, and if you want to wine is not expensive. The mine a unique and unforgettable experience. Take shelter because it makes around 8 ° in mine.

It is recommended to go with a vehicle 4 x 4 or van if possible, since the road is gravel and has many undulations. Signage is practically nil in the area, so it is a bit complicated to find the place. As is is in height usually do cold and blows wind by what them recommend carry a good coat, especially for enter in the mines where the temperature descends considerably. Inside the mines we liked throughout the tour and the abseil descent. The low lighting makes that the experience is all a challenge. It is highly recommended for those who like adventure.View original
Luciano de BarberisExcellent this place. We made the excursion to the mines with rappel and the truth that is not to be missed. In addition to a very good price we ate an excellent very full roast, served as a few Kings (includes everything and it can be repeated: Chori, sausage, roast, empty, salad, grilled potato, homemade bread, soft drinks). There had missed a glass of red wine only.View original
